advantages and disadvantage of water tube and fire tube boiler Boiler Type ZOZEN boiler covers an area of 150 thousand square meters, with an annual production capacity of 2000 industrial boilers and 25000 tons of steam.Our products have been sold to more
In a firetube boiler, the heating element produces hot water through a more indirect mechanism. The hot flue gases generated by the boiler’s combustion are channeled into tubes and routed through a water tank, and the heat transfer from these “firetubes”
A Fire Tube is a tube that provides heat to other processing units such as gas production unit, heaters and oil treaters. The metal tube is specially designed to fulfill the heating requirements. Typically, a Fire Tube heater uses low-pressure and limited
Fire or smoke tube boilers have hot gases inside the tube, while water tube boilers have water inside the tube and hot gases surrounding them. Smoke type boilers are composite boilers that are extensively used on ships. A brief differentiation between smo

7/6/1971 · Fire tube and water tube boilers are mounted on opposite sides of one upright wall of a casing and connected to common mud and steam drums. The drums are communicated by downcomers which, together with fire tube boilers, are confined in a dead
It should be noted that the boiler performances can be similar regardless of whether using a water-tube or fire-tube, where efficiencies of up to 95% can be achieved, depending on the manufacturer and configuration. However, at higher capacities, water-tu
The fire-tube boilers are potentially dangerous as the steam pressures are high and volume of hot water and steam content is large. * water surrounds the tubes through which hot combustion gases pass before venting to atmosphere through gas uptakes.
Water Tube vs. Fire Tube Abstract. While both fire tube and water tube boiler technologies have developed throughout their life, there are certain inherent advantages and disadvantages of each design. This article is intended to highlight these points for
steam capacity and pressure. Fire-tube boilers can reach thermal efficiencies of about 70 percent. There are also special types of fire-tube boilers such as scotch marine boilers and firebox boilers, but they will not, however, be discussed further here.
